Stars when they felt luckiest
I am no devout feng shui believer but it’s quite interesting to learn about its mystique if only to get into the Chinese New Year spirit.
Since it’s the season of lucky charms and tikoy, I asked some celebrities when they felt luckiest. As pour moi, I was on a roll when my mom sent me to summer school in Paris. It was a dream come true for me since I had always been fascinated by anything French.
May Lady Luck lock up your life with more blessings than you can count this 2012. Kung Hei Fat Choi! Bring it on, Year of the Dragon!
LORNA TOLENTINO: “I feel lucky every time I wake up in the morning knowing and feeling God’s love for me and my family.”
GLORIA DIAZ: “I’ve felt luckiest these past three years. I have work that I love and my three kids are all turning out to be healthy, responsible and goal-oriented.”
LANI MERCADO: “I consider 2010 as the most blessed for me. Our family scored a grand slam in the elections when Bong was reelected senator, Strike held on to the mayoralty post in Bacoor and I won a seat in the 15th Congress. It was also a busy year for us on the show-biz front. Bong and I got our hands full as Kapuso stars and our son Jolo signed up with the Kapamilya network. Later in the year, he won as barangay captain, which paved the way for him to become a provincial board member.”
DEREK RAMSEY: “When I graduated from the Cheltenham College in England, where I took up Physics/Math/Chemistry and when I took up Marketing in the United States. I realized I was lucky enough to have great parents who gave me the best education they could afford.”
AIKO MELENDEZ: “I think I will be luckiest this year because they say Rabbits like me will be lucky. And first quarter pa lang I can feel it na ’cause I’m swamped with work. I’m claiming it as my year.”
AMY PEREZ: “My luckiest was 2010 even if they said it woudn’t be a good year for me since I was born in the Year of the Rooster. It made me realize that in the end, prayers, faith, resourcefulness and determination are the secrets to blessings.”
TIRSO CRUZ: “I guess I can say this is going to be my year since I was born in the Year of the Dragon.”
KEAN CIPRIANO: “I felt all the positive vibes surrounding me during my first major concert, ‘One Stage, One Night’ last November 26. It was the best day of my life.”
DINGDONG DANTES: “December 2011 was when I had a lucky streak because of ‘Segunda Mano’s’ success, the start of ‘My Beloved’ on GMA 7, and because of an answered prayer about a domestic issue.”
KYLA: “I felt luckiest when I married the love of my life, Rich (Alvarez).”
JOHN ARCILLA: “I thank my lucky stars the day I was chosen to portray a part in the latest ‘Bourne’ flick because those who tried out for the part are no other than the best actors of the film industry and theater companies in our country and the fact that the Hollywood film’s mileage is worldwide.”
